Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Thumbs up Maglite Mini Mag AA Service Kit AM2A064

I had some AA Mini-Mag Lites that the switches were bad or the batteries had corroded and got this kit and some new bulbs to fix them up and they work like new, now. The kit was worth the money, as they look to be genuine Mag-Lite parts.

I have a couple big ones, 4 or 5 D cells that you can use as a club, I switched to LED on one, not happy. maybe a new LED conversion may work better, that was years ago, but the batteries have lasted forever.

There are some new LED conversions that look promising, but you can get LED Mag-Lites on ebay cheaper than the conversions, a lot of times.

I just ordered another kit to fix up the d cell lights. I have three or four that are kaput.

I ordered and received the C and D cell Mag Lite repair kits. I've had a few here that have needed switches and lenses. Got to work on them and notices there are two different switch units, one for snap ring retention and one for internal nut retention. The snap ring models must be later cheaper models, because the tubes are a lot thinner than the nutted ones. If the serial number starts with a "D", then it's a snap ring model and you remove the switch from the back of the tube.

The things you learn...

I wouldn't go as far repairing them, flashlights have gotten cheaper and better over the years.

I enjoy doing stuff like that and you can't find the earlier heavy Maglites any more.
